Hmmm, maybe it's just me, but i don't get it. Exactly what is Lawton going to promote and where is all the money for promotion going to come from?
The Wichita Mountains are not run by Lawton and they don't directly get any revenue from it. They are about 12 miles from the exit to the mountains. i've been hiking there dozens of times, but I never go in to Lawton and I doubt a significant number of visitors do.
Medicine Park however does directly benefit from the wildlife refuge.
And actually, the wildlife refuge is promoted in quite a few publications and some tourism commercials.
You could attract millions more to the refuge and very few would venture into Lawton.
